After a sluggish start to the season, the Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to get back in the NBA Championship hunt. LeBron James and his Cavs will try to score another win when they face the Chicago Bulls on Jan. 23. HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this game so click to watch!
LeBron James, 31, wants to bring the NBA Championship trophy back to his hometown of Cleveland. After starting season on the wrong foot, King James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back on the right track. But will Jimmy Butler, 26, and the Chicago Bulls derail the Cavs’ winning ways?
It’s the battle of Chi-Town versus C-Town when Jimmy and the rest of the Bulls travel to the Rock and Roll Capital of the World on Jan. 23. The game will kick off at 8:30 PM EST, and it’ll might just be a preview of which squad will eventually win the Eastern conference title.
The Cavs have really changed things up, as they fired their second-year coach David Blatt on Jan. 22, according to ESPN. David had lost support over his locker room, especially after Steph Curry, 27, and the Golden State Warriors completely embarrassed the Cavs on Jan. 18.
Don’t feel too bad for LeBron, because the Warriors wiped the floor with the Bulls two days later on Jan. 20. While the Bulls tried to upset the dominant Golden State squad, they lost by a humiliating amount — 125-94. Ouch! That’s got to hurt.
The Cavs decided to be like Taylor Swift, 25, and shake it off, shake it off. They took on the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers, easily defeating both. They sunk the Nets, 91-78, while they breezed past the Clippers, 115-102. The good news kept on coming, as LeBron was named to the startling lineup of the Eastern Conference’s All Star Team. He’ll join former teammate, Dwayne Wade, as well as Paul George and Kylie Lowry.
On the other side, Steph Curry of the Warriors will join by Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant on the Western Conference All Star team. While Jimmy and Paul Gasol narrowly missed out on the fan-voted award, there’s still a chance that the Bulls can make an All Star Game appearance this year.
